During times of war and during times of peace, we must prepare for tomorrow with the realities of today.

Texas to Guard Borders?

Posted by Rosemary Welch on January 24, 2007

I found this little tidbit over at RealClearPolitics.

Gov. Rick Perry said Monday he will send a dozen armed security platoons from the Texas Army National Guard to help law enforcement officers secure the border.

The 604 newly activated troops are to be part of Operation Wrangler — an interagency law enforcement effort aimed at reducing crime and increasing security across the state.

The troops will stay active for an undisclosed period of time in areas across Texas. A spokeswoman for the governor said she could not elaborate “on the timing or places, but the surge operation will be on a statewide level.”

Hmm…do you think they are finally hearing us or is this for show? I have no idea, since everything seems to only matter if they can re-elected or not! Let’s hope my skeptism is wrong.
